27 OT—B (10-8)
Processional: Lord, All Things are Guided still ( SALZBURG )
Kyrie: Missa de Angelis
Psalm: May the Lord bless us all the days of our lives W 638
Offertory: Search Me, O God (Phillip Young)
Communion: In salutari tuo
Laudate Dominum (Mozart)
Thanksgiving: Love Divine, All Loves Excelling W 172
Recessional: The Head That Once Was Crowned With Thorns W 266
We introduced the "de angelis" Kyrie in the following manner: cantor w/organ sings melisma on "Kyrie"; congregation joins in on "eleison" with "fuller" organ. Same with "Christe" and the last "Kyrie." No repeats and last melismatic "Kyrie" omitted.
The hope is to do it like this for a few weeks and then have the congregation sing the whole thing w/organ and then eventually without accompaniment. We'll see how it goes . . .
Also, I'm very blessed to have a young voice student who sang the Mozart "Laudate" very beautifully. And she can blend!!!
